Version 1.002 is now out, and includes lots of goodies. One of the top-requested features was a way to get techs from races that already have them, and so that's today's "feature of the day."
Beyond that, there are a ton of fixes and improvements all over the place:
* A few GUIs are now quicker to navigate through (those small-action "after action report" popups, primarily).
* A lot of racial attitudes now shift in reaction to bad things that you do to other races.
Fixed three exploits that clever players found. It's always fun to see
what an increasingly-larger audience thinks of that a smaller one did
not. And then of course do something about it. :)
also fixed some really unfortunate errors in the planetary ground and
bombing attacks that were making those basically... well, borked.
Incredibly sorry about that. It was a small change that we had made
right prior to the weekend that caused it, and the fact that it was
happening was not immediately obvious.
* And then some other, smaller bugfixes as well.
is the first day of us releasing at least one new free feature every
DAY at this point, thanks to the overwhelming support this game has
had. Seriously, this is now our best launch ever, and we're extremely
grateful to our ever-growing community for their support, as well as to
the press for taking the time out to look at our stuff.
this week, we'll continue putting out at least one new free feature
every week for at least a few months, if not longer. A quest, a new
weapon or ability, a new ship, a new action... something. We'll vary it
up, and make it fun. I'm really excited about expanding the game even
further, as large as it already is. Right now we're doing that very
fast in response to all the huge numbers of new players and all the
things that a larger audience is bound to dig up in a game of this scope
and complexity; once that settles down, we'll make it less intensive
but still ongoing.
More to come tomorrow. Enjoy!
